If you love climbing, there’s a good chance that over the years you’ll have either sent or received a climbing meme on a WhatsApp group. If you’ve been into climbing for a while, you’ll almost certainly have seen a climbing meme or two on one of earth’s countless social media platforms. And, that’s alright. The modern world, to some extent, revolves around the creation of memes. Great memes, bad memes, confusing memes that stop you in your tracks because, well, they don’t really make much sense; yes, memes are arguably the hieroglyphics of the 21st century
Like the Ancient Egyptians before, some climbers have embraced the visual language of memes to communicate with other individuals in their culture. Why have they done this? Banter. Historians will, if they’ve got any sense about them, put it all down to good old fashioned banter. Nobody’s changing the world with a climbing meme, but someone might just spread the gift of ‘lols’ and that’s 100% OK with us. Anyway, this introduction has almost certainly gone on long enough. In short, we’ve scoured the internet and rounded up some of the best climbing memes in history. You might say… they rock.
Right, that’s enough words out of us for the time being. It’s time for memes. It’s time for a whole bunch of memes that rock climbers, and only rock climbers (probably), will truly appreciate. These will crag you up. Well, they might not but they’ll almost certainly be pretty relatable. Enjoy them. Enjoy the memes.
